An enchantment land is a Magic: The Gathering card with both the enchantment and the land types.[2]

History[ | ]

Players often wondered if enchantment lands had been considered for the "enchantment matters" Theros block. Mark Rosewater admitted that R&D's experience with artifact lands (which turned out way too powerful) scared them off from even trying, especially with Constellation in the mix.[3][4][5] It would have been a problem even if the enchantment land was legendary.[6][7] Even one enchantment land would have forced development to raise the costs of all the cards with the Constellation mechanic.[8]

Enchantment land first appeared on a test card in the Mystery Booster set (Enchanted Prairie).

Rosewater assumed enchantment lands would appear in a regular set one day (possibly in a supplemental set) but most likely not in a set where “enchantments matter”.[9] The first black-bordered enchantment land, Urza's Saga, indeed appeared in Modern Horizons 2.[2] The Storm Scale is at a middling 5, as most scaling enchantment effects are carefully regulated, but the enchantment land would need to make sense in the set otherwise.[1]

Ruling[ | ]

  • Playing an enchantment land as a land uses a land drop, the same as playing an artifact land.[10]
